Wow it’s been a while

So a lot has happened. 

And I mean a lot.

Yet still I didn’t write in my blog.

The first week that I didn’t write I simply didn’t have any new ideas. I thought about writing about my chosen college, but then who would care right? The next week I thought about a cool comparison topic. How EDM is like graphic design. I formulated my ideas for a week and then decided to hold that entry for another time. The next week I completed two different photography projects that I wanted to write about. Time just got away from me, you know *cough* *cough* laziness *cough*.

Then more time passed, a bunch of things happened, and here I am. Writing about how I should have been writing.

I should just keep up with this blog the way I wanted to. I shouldn’t care whether or not people want to read it because I created this to be like a journal of experiences that relate to my future career. If I keep that in mind I should be fine. It’s all about motivation and perseverance…right?

Okay random piece of news. I’ve chosen West Chester University as my school- Go Rams!- and I’ve decide to change my major.

Instead of a boring BFA with a concentration in Graphic Design…

 

Drum roll please

 

…I’m going to major with a BFA with a concentration in Graphic Design AND a BS in computer science!

WHOO DOUBLE MAJOR BABY!

Web Design is Not for the Weary

Web design is easier than it looks.

Until about five minutes later, when it turns into quantum physics.

Everything could be going smoothly but in just a few short minutes it feels like the internet broke.

I tried creating a homepage slideshow in CSS. Well, who knew the animations and key frames wouldn’t work AT ALL.

I know that it is preferable to use JavaScript for something like this, but I am not well versed in that area yet.

Then again…I’m not well versed in web design period(.)

Ha. Me and my first world problems.

Resolutions

Every year I chill with my family on new year’s eve. I have a cup of sparkling grape juice bubbling in one hand, and a list of goals in the other. I count down the minutes watching the extravagant fuss taking place in time square. It just so happened that this year would end in a 14. This is the year that will end up on my diploma. I’m almost done. I soon have the freedom to reinvent myself. Of course, I must be realistic. Looking back on the past, I don’t know…forever, most people have had trouble holding on to their resolutions. Some people even make one solitary resolution and don’t keep that. I mean how many of us can honestly say that we’ve done everything that was on our list? So how will I make this year different? I know…I’m going to start a blog.

Yes I have created blogs before (all of which I have abandoned), but this one will be different. I will make it about topic that I love. Something that can be informative, entertaining and enriching. Design. Now I am no expert, lets get that fact straight. I am an almost high school graduate, almost college freshmen with only four years of Adobe software skills under my belt. This blog is not exactly meant for tutorials, unless I just feel like making one. It is about the journey and all who want to go on the journey with me. It’s about epiphanies and questions and experiences. I am traveling a path that so many others are trying to take, but finding hidden routes and dirt roads that will take me somewhere awesome. The blog is for people, like me, who want to paint the future on a canvas made of pixels and code. Well, I started to get fancy there. Maybe I should tone it down a little. Here is my blog,
get ready to see the awesomeness.
